    Spaced is still on my Netflix or Hulu list. One of these days I'm going to sit and watch it.

    Late night - overnight world news. Talking about Bill O'Reilly being canned. His x-show has already been named to: "The Factor". Also, they're beating on our illustrious President and how he lies.
    Well, going to take a sleep aid and hope it works soon. Night ya'll...:emoji_bow::emoji_kissing_closed_eyes::emoji_zzz:

    Tonight, the final 2 episodes of Broadchurch because I missed the penultimate one the previous week - I narrowly avoided spoilers at a do last night, but happened to mention I was behind and a collective intake of colleagues' breath suggested they'd just been talking about the big finish before I hoved into earshot. Their Very Tactful behaviour strongly suggests it'll be a treat!

    I just started watching "The Thick of It" (for Peter Capaldi) and I love how sleazy it is! The camera work looks like "The Office". I don't always understand what they're saying due to the accents but I usually get the gist of it.

    Glaswegian just has to be one of the best accents to rage and swear in, and well worth the effort you are putting into mastering the nuances! It was the great Sir Terry Pratchett who observed that all good swearing has an international component - but when you get round to the spinoff film In the Loop you'll get the Americans v. Tucker standoff of all time.

    Never saw The Office - the inevitability of Gervase was too appalling to contemplate.

    Love it! But have found it very odd to watch back-to-back with University Challenge - one is straightforward general knowledge, although touch stuff, but Only Connect is a crafty weasel of a quiz, where I'm chuffed out of all proportion if I ever get anything right at all! But I'm getting better at Pointless, so there is hope...

    I finished up on THE TWILIGHT ZONE (1959) and have moved on to CRIME STORY, which I have enjoyed enormously so far.

    On TV, I've seen the first couple of episodes of THE YOUNG POPE, which wasn't too bad at all.

    Oh... and that TV show about that medical guy who travels around pretending to be a policeman...

    Did you ever watch Golden Balls. I absolutely loved that one.

    Not cerebral at all but full of lies and deception.

    What? When? Who?
    Title sadly means nothing to me (Golden Shot yes, Golden Girls ditto) - but your description fills me with envy and admiration - a show ripe for revival maybe?

    Hosted by Jasper Carrot (about ten years ago).

    Good grief - looks complicated but it's CARROT!
    Oh, now I want to watch The Detectives again, and sing his Magic Roundabout till a teacher tells me to stop it NOW.

    "The Chew" a silly, daily, talk cooking show. They make everything look so easy! Mix this & that and something comes out perfect & delish. What they don't show is going to the market to get all the ingredients, the high cost of said fixins that most common people cannot afford, all the prep work, slicing, dicing, measuring, and after all the previous has been accomplished by behind the scene helpers, they, the helpers get to do all the clean-up and the "stars" get to go home. I would enjoy cooking too...:emoji_dancer::emoji_birthday::emoji_purple_heart:

    EPT Poker on YouTube.

    Very addictive.

    Catching up on missed episodes of The Last Leg - just boggling at Ed Miliband's stellar performance for one thing - get back in the game you silly man!

    Yes, just a shame Jeremy wasn't as stellar when he was on.

    Did you see Miriam Margolyes drop the C-bomb... twice?

    Hilarious.

    Yes, but I'd expect no less of her - same college as me - must be the only explanation, it turns out such blowsy and robust broads!

    Pure comedy bliss in short, perfect episodes.
    Favourite songs, sketches, characters anyone?

    Give me a Viking power ballad, a Bobsy report and anything from Death and I am a very contented and giggling person, however often I've seen them before.

    Certainly it's in my top 5 but so many to chose from!
    I even like the Pilgrim Fathers' Rap - and I can;t stand rap... Shakespeare jazz, 4 Georges, Cleopatra and the RAF boyband are all up there for me too.
